Weekend Recession: ‘We’re Not Young’ For the 30-Something Crowd

April 20, 2012 at 11:08 pm (Fun, Gen X, Sketchy, We Are Young, We're Not Young, Weekend Recession)

Via Mashable:

Sometimes, growing up sucks. “We’re Not Young” — a depressing but funny viral video that turns indie pop band Fun’s “We Are Young” smash hit on its head — captures the conflicts people encounter in their 30s.
Part of Yahoo’s Sketchy comedy series, the parody lampoons 30-year-olds’ drinking problems, married friends, long-term relationships, expanded waistlines, prostate appointments and not-so-desirable jobs.
Fun’s original version (listen below) has become an anthem for the younger set with lyrics celebrating the carefree nature of, well, not being older than 30.
The lines in the music video spoof, however, portray a much more tormented period in someone’s life. For example:
  • “Tonight, we’re not young. We’re all somewhere in our 30s and nothing worthy. This ain’t fun. Tonight, we’re not young. I guess I’ll learn Photoshop. Maybe I’ll sell pot. Start a blog.”
  • “I guess I’ll do elliptical. Maybe I can finally do that yoga class. But I probably won’t. HGTV. Going to stay at home. Watch Modern Family.”

Weekend Recession: Watch a Dog Being Vacuumed

April 14, 2012 at 3:29 pm (Dog, Hoover, Pet, Suck, Vacuum, Weekend Recession, Welsh Corgi)

Have a great weekend y’all…

Pet owners in search of a way to keep their rugs clean might take a lesson from the owner of Corbin Dallas Multipass, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, who is starring in a video that’s fast gone viral. Of course, not all dogs are as absurdly obedient as Corbin, who submits to being vacummed by his flip-flop-wearing owner and doesn’t even flinch when the suctioning attachment nears his puppy private parts or his ears or his cute pink tongue. And, when his underside has been groomed clean, Corbin willingly flips over to allow the fur on his topside to be Hoovered as well. Guess being vacuumed doesn’t suck as much as you might think.

Weekend Recession: The Most Amazing Hole-In-One Ever?

April 7, 2012 at 8:28 am (Ace, Augusta, Augusta National, Golf, Hole In One, Martin Kaymer, Masters, Sports, Vijay Singh, Weekend Recession)

A little Masters action for you this weekend, in case you missed it…

Via Mashable:

At the Monday practice round at Augusta National, Martin Kaymer — a German golfer ranked No. 6 in the World Golf Rankings — skipped his ball across the water and into the 16th hole at Augusta. He is the second golfer to tee off in this video.
Naturally, the crowd goes completely crazy at his hole in one.
While this shot may not help his ranking or gain him any points, it absolutely helps his Internet cred.

Here’s the video…

But can it really be considered ‘the most amazing hole-in-one ever’?

Vijay Singh might have something to say about that.  Here he is on the same hole, during a practice round for the same tournament back in 2009.

Weekend Recession: Drunk Guy Sings Bohemian Rhapsody, and Chuck Norris Was Here

March 30, 2012 at 5:01 pm (Arrested, Bohemian Rhapsody, Car, Chuck Norris, Dashboard, Drunk Guy, Facts, Police, Queen, Sings, Weekend Recession)

Who wouldn’t want to spend their weekend watching a drunk guy singing Bohemian Rhapsody in the back of a police car?  I say, count me in!

Via Allahpundit:
To cleanse the palate, via NBC, this one’s burning up Twitter and will be mega-viral by tomorrow so get in on the ground floor now. Apparently there does exist a rare twilight state of drunkenness in which you’re bombed enough to get arrested yet not so bombed that you can’t perform “Bohemian Rhapsody” in its entirety. The most magical moment: At 1:30 when he re-creates the tinkling piano and then launches into an impassioned “mamaaaaaaaaaa.” You’re going to be famous, kid. For something you don’t even remember doing.
Then of course, there is this.  
Remember this Chuck Norris fact:  A speeding car cannot injure Chuck Norris, HE injures the car.
That is all…   Have a great weekend everyone!

Weekend Recession: Wife Fails Miserably at ’80 MPH’ Math Question

March 24, 2012 at 2:03 pm (80, Chambers, Chelsea Chambers, Comedy, Math, Real Meaning of MPH, Solves, Solving, Travis Chambers, Weekend Recession, Woman)

Enjoy the weekend, folks.  And try not to think too hard… like this woman.

Via The Blaze:

You don’t have to be married to squirm when you watch the following video, but if you are married, it will probably make it that much better — or worse.
Travis Chambers was recently taking a road trip with his wife Chelsea when he decided to ask her a question: If someone is traveling 80 miles-per-hour, how long does it take him to travel 80 miles? The answer may seem obvious. But Chelsea failed miserably at it, coming up with all kinds of theories, like “58 minutes.” Travis couldn’t stop from snickering.

That, however, isn’t the worst part. See, Travis recorded the whole thing and then posted it on the Internet. That’s when it went viral. Yikes!

Good luck on the next road trip, Travis.

Weekend Recession: (Video) What NOT to do on St. Patrick’s Day

March 17, 2012 at 9:04 am (Best Fails, Best St Patricks Day Fails, Comedy News, Drunk Fails, Fail, Fails, Funny Videos, St Patricks Day, St Patricks Day Fails, St Pattys Day, St Pattys Day Fails, Video, Weekend Recession)

Let this video be your guide this St. Patrick’s Day weekend… a guide on what not to do in your drunken stupor. And remember, trees don’t kill people.  People who can’t avoid slamming their dome into trees, kill people.

Via the Huffington Post:

What is Saint Patrick’s Day, really? A time to dress up in green, tear the town apart, and make a fool of yourself? For many people, the answer is yes.
While searching for the best Saint Patrick’s Day FAILS, we found an overwhelming number of green beer-drinkers making unfortunate decisions. From a collegiate girl trying to break a two-by-four to a drunk guy uncontrollably running headfirst into a tree, the Internet has more than enough documentation of this holiday’s worst decisions.
We think the Bowling Green State guy has the least luck of the Irish, but we’ll leave the decision of the best FAIL up to you.

Weekend Recession: Video – Reporter Ambush’s Attorney, Walks Directly Into Pole

March 10, 2012 at 5:50 pm (CTV, Kent Molgat, Light, Pole, Reporter, Traffic, Weekend Recession)

‘Taint easy being a reporter some days…

Via Mediaite:

I’ve never much liked “ambush” interviews. You know the ones. There the clips where a reporter jumps out of the bushes and starts yelling questions at a Congressmen or insurance fraud guy or owner of a restaurant that failed health codes or something while the subject just covers his face and tries to walk away. Sure, they’re visually exciting but you’re rarely gonna get any actually illuminating answers. Which is why this video of a reporter attempting an interview like that walking right into a traffic light pole is so funny.
…also, people walking into stuff is just funny. Always.

Weekend Recession: Andrew Breitbart’s 2012 CPAC Speech

March 3, 2012 at 3:07 pm (Andrew Breitbart, Breitbart, Candidate, Conservative, CPAC, GOP, Kurt Cobain, Media, Republican, Speech, Susie Bean, Weekend Recession)

Normally, we like to leave you with something funny to look at over the weekend – whether it’s Elmo singing ‘I’m Sexy and I know It’, or a baby playing ping-pong, etc…

But the world become a little less funnier this week with the unexpected announcement that conservative media icon, Andrew Breitbart, had passed away.

Breitbart was essentially the Kurt Cobain of political media, saying things that were on the minds of conservatives, but delivered in a way that only he could.  He was bright, funny, accommodating, and by all accounts the hardest working man in media.

So this weekend we are simply giving you the complete clip from his speech at CPAC, just a few weeks ago.  It is funny in and of itself, but again ends with a tremendously important point that can’t be stressed enough:

I don’t care who our candidate is and I haven’t since the beginning of this. I haven’t! Ask not what the candidate can do for you, ask what you can do for the candidate! …

When I walk through CPAC or a I travel the United States to meet people in the Tea Party who care – black, white, gay, and straight – anyone that’s willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker.

And if you’re not in that bunker because you’re not satisfied with [a certain] candidate, more than shame on you! You’re on the other side!

It is also sad to see a man so vibrant and full of energy, that he stole the show at CPAC, and to know that just a short time later he is gone.  But the fight carries on.

Our condolences to his wife, Susie, his four young children, and the rest of his family and friends…

Weekend Recession: VIDEO – Baby Trains Hard For Olympic Ping Pong

February 3, 2012 at 4:59 pm (Baby, Baby Plays Table Tennis, Funny Videos, Ping Pong, Table Tennis, Table Tennis Baby, UK Viral Videos, Video, Weekend Recession)

Time to check this kid for PED’s…

The Huffington Post writes:

You might think you’re pretty good at table tennis, but that’s just because you haven’t met baby Jamie yet.
He’s been training for minutes now, and by the looks of things, he’ll be headed to the Olympics in no time.
Naysayers might point out that he has no backhand to speak of, but with a forehand like that does it really matter?

Have a great weekend all!

Weekend Recession: Video – Baby Amazed By Dad’s Motorboat Impression

January 20, 2012 at 5:10 pm (Babies, Baby Is Amazed, Baby Is Amazed By Dad's Motorboat Impression, Cute Videos, Dads, Funny Baby Videos, Parenting, Video, Weekend Recession)

This video at Fatherhood Is shows a baby girl absolutely amazed by her father’s ability to make motor boat sounds.

The Huffington Post writes:

Daddy blogger Fatherhood Is recently posted this video of a new way he’s discovered to calm his daughter Charlotte when she gets fussy, and it’s probably not the first thing you’d think to do to comfort a crying baby.

Granted, Charlotte’s facial expression is more one of sheer amazement than relaxation, but hey, if dad’s motorboat impression is enough to keep her from crying, it’s good enough for us.

Please place the child’s eyes back in her head.  🙂
